A few years ago, our ex-English lead (@clairemarie00) developed an idea she found on a course. This was that you highlight half of the line in the children’s book to show where the main writing should go with the white space above/below for ascenders and descenders.
I’ll try and find some examples of completed writing to add to this post next week.
I found highlighting the lines to be a bit of a faff, so came up with a Word doc version instead. I hope these are useful.
